FARGO, N.D. (AP) A 19-year-old flight attendant has been accused of setting a fire aboard a commercial airplane that was forced to make an emergency landing in Fargo, N.D.
Eder Rojas was charged Thursday in federal court in Minneapolis. The case will be prosecuted in Fargo.
Officials say the Compass Airlines flight from Minneapolis to Saskatchewan landed safely in Fargo on May 7 after smoke began to fill the back of the plane.
Court documents say Rojas, of Woodbury, Minn., told authorities he was upset at the airline for making him work that route.
